How to make a paper mache bowl:

  • need a small bowl – plastic is best.  If no plastic, metal or ceramic will work fine but slide a layer of plastic wrap over it first
  • newspaper – tear into strips
  • make a paper mache paste – 1:1 flour and water
  • dip the newspaper into the paste and layer over the bowl
  • you’ll want many layers (about 5) – the more the better
  • leave to dry overnight
  • gently press out the bowl – if you have a plastic bowl, just give it a bit of a squeeze and it will pop out
  • paint and decorate

Stretchy Universe Slime Activity

Did you know that our universe is stretching out in all directions? It’s true! Ever since the universe began about 13.8 billion years ago, it’s been stretching out and expanding.  Even today, as we use telescopes to see galaxies far away, we see they are moving away from us. And that’s not all. The farthest galaxies are moving faster than the ones close to us.  This happens because of how the universe began, which we sometimes call the “Big Bang.”  In this activity, you’ll make your own stretchy universe slime.  Click the Picture…

Welcome to NASA Kids’ Club.

NASA provides a safe place for children to play as they learn about NASA and its missions.

On this site, you will find games of various skill levels for children pre-K through grade 4. These games support national education standards in STEM — science, technology, engineering and mathematics. See the Game Descriptions and National Education Standards.

The NASA Kids’ Club Picture Show is an image gallery of some of NASA’s coolest and most interesting pictures. They may be used as conversation starters or writing prompts to lead children in discussions about STEM-related topics and current events.

The Now in Space slideshow introduces young explorers to the crew currently orbiting Earth on the International Space Station.
